Rebecca Carroll always had dreams that come true. Now, as a teenage girl forced to deal with the trauma of her parents’ divorce, her dreams turn into nightmares—sending Rebecca spiraling down the rabbit hole.
Rebecca closes herself off from the world—hiding her emotions and thoughts in her artwork. And to further remove herself from the pains of her real life, Rebecca denounces her given name and insists that she be called Alice.
Clearly a troubled girl, her parents force her into therapy with a well-known child psychiatrist, Dr. Holloway. Slowly, Dr. Holloway gains Rebecca’s trust and helps her face her demons.
Rebecca has a deep hatred for her parents. She believes her father to be a philander and her mother is a neglectful alcoholic—causing the failure of their family. This view of her parents becomes the focus of a recurring nightmare where Rebecca witnesses her father’s infidelity and watches her mother’s indifference to life lead to a fatal accident. One morning, she awakens realizing the dream is about to become a reality—can she stop it in time?
DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
Dane Story was born and raised in Kailua, Hawaii. Upon graduating from Punahou School, Dane ventured to Chicago to earn, with honors, a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies from Columbia College Chicago in 2005. While in Chicago, Dane pursued his dream of filmmaking—writing, producing and directing numerous short pictures including: Last Night (2005), The Little Things (2005), Providence (2003) and Obsession (2003).
Dane has been interested in visual storytelling for most of his life. He began acting in school plays at the age of five and has carried a passion for film since he could speak. Being a great filmmaker is Dane’s life aspiration. While he is certain there are many things that help a filmmaker attain greatness, he is sure nothing is more important than directing as much as possible (practice makes perfect) and immersing his mind into the works and minds of other great directors. His greatest influences include Clint Eastwood, Stanley Kubrick, Steven Soderbergh, and Neil Jordan.
Dane is currently balancing his time between working on his own projects and edging his way into the film industry from the bottom up. Dane’s first industry job was as an intern on the Marc Forster movie, Stranger Than Fiction. And soon after returning to Hawaii to live and work, Dane became a set production assistant on the hit ABC television show, Lost. He has also worked on other Hollywood productions filming in Hawaii—including HBO’s Entourage and most recently, Steven Soderbergh’s The Informant. Dane hopes to carry the skills and insights he’s learned, through all of his film experiences, into future projects of his own, and stake a claim for himself as a talented filmmaker.
